    June Catch reports

    My first visit to my new ticket. Took the kitchen sink with me as I had no idea about the lake. Few friendly lads gave me an idea of the lake and its stock (only 40 carp apparently) so I wondered around the lake aimlessly looking for a sign of life. 3 hours later I had picked a swim. Only to see a fish jump a few swims down so quickly moved the gear down and by midnight I was into my first match pit carp. 32.2lb. Chuffed to get one on the first night.

  4. Did a couple of afternoons at the beginning of the month. 1st afternoon looked barren for Carp so I got the perch rod out. Second afternoon I found a few carp milling about in the weed so put a nice lump of bread in amongst them.

    August catch reports

    Having done next to no fishing this year I was very excited to begin my autumn campaign on Friday. I was actually due to start this week but conditions were improving so rapidly last week I just had to take the Friday off to get down there. I've only been baiting for 2 week so wasn't really expecting much to happen. I got down to the lake at 04:30 and spent the first hour or two just looking and saw very little. I decided halfheartedly to get the rods on the baited spot but it was clear that it wasn't exactly kicking off down there. I kept my eyes open and by 7am I'd seen some activity wa

  9. I managed to nip down for a cheeky midweek day sesh yesterday. My pre-baited area is still not happening which is really disappointing but that didn't stop me doing whatever I could to catch one of those old originals. I managed to keep track of the fish as they clearly reacted to a brand new south westerly. A well placed pop up with about 30 freebies did the trick and I was very happy to land another old'n. Really nice long fish. A repeat, but I could never be disappointed with a carp that's older than me.

    Dinton diary.

    So after a couple of people saying they would like to see/hear about my time on dinton I've managed to find my pic's and even my old diary/ fish lists. So here goes, I'll start with my best session I had on there. I'll give a little insight into the season first and to what then followed. So its 2006 and just before the start of the season a mate i worked with , who also fished dinton, asked me if I'd like to go on his bait. It was a homemade bait so something I'd not really done in my fishing and especially as I was more than happy with premier baits and also the fact that I'd given a

    December Catch Reports

    I popped down to a day ticket lake in the Nene Valley for a social this weekend. Conditions were awful; cold, wet, miserable. Blanked the first night and didn't really know what I could do to turn the session around until I saw one lump out around midday. In came the rods, found a new spot in the zone, few spombs of bait and a couple of pink pop ups, job done. I knew it was game on when I started getting liners on dark. Loads of liners in fact - I counted 17 before finally the bobbin stayed at the top and I pulled into a bite at around 8pm. Five minutes later and I have a nice little mirr

  13. Went the other day, just after the storm, I’ve been walking the dog around two of my local waters as they are only about 1/2mile apart so they are easy to keep tabs on. The larger water had all the carp stocks tightly shoaled under a fallen tree in an out of bounds area. (Roped off temporarily by the management to stop anglers casting next to the fallen tree and risking tethered fish. Good thinking in my view.) on the smaller water, I was able to find the 2 ghosties quite easily and with them were about 60% of the lakes stock, all milling about in the same swim, they were there for about 7-10

    Old catch reports

    So when I used to do my old catch reports I couldn't add any pics due to publicity bans. Now it's been a few years since I fished the venues I can re-post a few with pics to go with them. To alleviate some of this boredom I thought I could start with this one from Sept '16. The original post is here. Below I'll re-post with kipper shots. If you like it I might do some more over the coming weeks. Two month blank run ended this weekend. The first big northerly of the year hit us on Friday, I'd been looking forward to it for weeks. Headed straight to the end of it when I arrived

  19. Just got back from 48 hours down at Bluebell lakes. I got off to a flyer with 7 takes 4 landed in the first afternoon, thank goodness I had a few bags ready - with mild temps and rain all day I managed to drop in the right place at the right time and get a few bites before it switched back off. The following day I was ready for the afternoon carnage but nothing happened, in hindsight the fish had probably moved down the other end with the weather, being the complete opposite to the day before- clear skies and cool temps. Guess there will be some bangers out this weekend.

  20. Had a go at Trent View mid Nov - dusting off the kit after almost a year of inactivity. 2nd morning the middle rod was away with a 26 mirror, then got done on the right rod soon after, no other action which was a little surprising having seen shows on me each morning- but great to get the first and maybe last fish of 2020!!!

  24. On Thursday I popped over to the res on one of my weekly baiting trips, with a day sesh due on the Friday. As soon as I arrived I just knew I'd struggle to sleep that night (due to excitement for the next day). It looked absolutely BANGING, there is just no other word for it. I saw a couple of carp show, and there was fizzing on my spot. It was almost a shame to ruin it by chucking spombs all over the place but that's what I was there for so that's what I did. At home afterwards the Mrs got a right earful about how confident I was, what I was going to catch, etc etc. Poor girl lol. I did

    May catch reports?

    Well after my post in "rod shots" and saying my bobbins were motionless I've had a nice mirror. My two rods that are close together must have had 30 shows over them so been sat on my hands waiting and wondering if all is ok with presentation etc. Then out the blue the left rod goes, keeping the pressure on due to a lot of weed this year it came in like a dog on a lead. At 34lb 08oz I'm more than happy.

    I'll start off this month. Just got back from a 36 hour. Wind was awful, rain was awful. Ground was like a bog but I managed 2 fish. Nothing big but made it worthwhile. Had the pleasure of photographing the best looking mirror ive ever seen on the bank for another angler that went 25lb. This was one of mine that luckily came in one of the better 10 minutes of weather on Saturday afternoon.

    At my dad's caravan for the weekend and earlier my daughter said I should go and catch a fish before we go. So 45 mins later and the biggest mirror in the lake graces my net. Bit down in weight but who cares.

    Went down the secret lake on Wednesday night for a few hours. A few showing but not a bleep as I expected. Finished work early on Thursday and as I had the rods in the car I popped down my club lake for a few hours. Mangaged to blag 3 fish in about 4 hours. Well happy with that and even more happy that the 1st one was one of the rare mirrors.
